Darren Sproles

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Bush was out of yesterday's game with a groin injury. I guess this might be his last year playing in the NFL...

Suppose San Diego has any offensive linemen up for grabs?

Sproles is swift as hell. I wonder how he compares to others in the 40yd dash..

I believe Reggie is faster than him... sure doesn't look like it though. As soon at the ball touches Sproles' hands, he's going... he's looking for yards. The problem with you know who in the past is that every time he touched the ball, he was looking to score... and that failed miserably.

I googled it and you were right. Sproles has a 4.49 and Reggie a 4.33 in the 40..

I don't know what his top end is, but his 0-60 is amazing. He's as quick as greased pig snot.

On a track. Game speed in pads I'll say it's closer. And I'll take his brain speed too.

But Sproles has what Reggie didn't. An understanding that you need to run north/south. He has instincts for finding the gaps and lanes or at least processes faster on the field.

I agree - I like the pair. The set would have been awesome!!

Sproles is shiftier ... he makes the subtle cuts to get through tight spots running north/south. Bush is faster, but he's also more deliberate and obvious with his running.
